Getting The Show on the Rogue
The 16th Annual Rogue Performance Festival will be March 2-11, 2017 in Fresno.
Once again, it will be among the biggest arts events held in the state of California. Rogue Festival is one of several “Fringe Festivals” found all across the world, celebrating the independent artist rather than established arts institutions. Rogue audiences will see every kind of art and entertainment – theatre, music, dance, independent film, spoken word, performance art, puppetry, physical theatre, and magic acts. Many of the acts are originally written and developed by the artists performing them, which means audiences enjoy art of a kind they’ll never experience anywhere else.
Rogue Festival performances are held in rapid rotation – no show is longer than 1 hour, intermissions between shows are only a half-hour, and most Rogue shows cost $10 or less. Shows also start exactly on-time. Always.
The Rogue Festival is also a non-juried festival, meaning that organizers don’t decide in advance what is presented. Performance slots are assigned on a first-come-first served basis and there are no prizes given or judging of content. The audience decides for itself what it likes and doesn’t like, so the Rogue Festival encourages word-of-mouth and online reviews from attendees.
Audiences can purchase tickets to shows online in advance or purchase at the door on arrival. The Rogue’s format is designed to give maximum choice to audiences and performers. All Rogue Festival box office sales go directly to the performers.
